Kate Who?

Challenge #3
over on the
is to be
Kate Spade Inspired

Well I didn't know whether to run and hide 
as I’d never heard of
Kate Spade!
Oh don’t you just love Google!
Here’s what I found
She's a New Yorker and designs
handbags, women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories 
amongst other things for the home.

I decided to look at the "home' section first but, 
apart from the diaries,
I couldn't find anything to suit
 so off I went in search of something else
on Pinterest where all the pictures are in one place!

Well, I didn’t realise that a lot of the scrapbook card quotes are actually Kate Spade and then I was torn between choosing a quote or one of her divine watches to be inspired by oh, choices, choices!
Eventually I decided on this gorgeous iPhone cover
and got to work on my layout.

Firstly, I created that Kate Spade background by cutting my papers at the correct angles as I had done with one of my forgeries earlier this month (spooky!)

I used most of my Forgeries on the Fourth
(although my letters bled slightly!)
to create my layout which highlights 
how excited she was when her 
Full Driving Licence arrived in the post!

A Few Forgeries... share today for Forgeries on the Fourth
over at the Counterfeit Kit Blog.

The first item I wanted to forge was this paper as it was the easiest!
 I took 3 papers, cut them at the correct angles and stuck down - simples!
I then decided to use my vellum and some dies to create my forgery of...
I love forging as you can make these things to suit your layouts ...

Next was two different options for the alphas and first was starting from scratch 
by cutting alphas from two different papers, cutting one in half and sticking on top.
I'm not keen on the outcome of this one but I'm sure it could be perfected
Then, with the use of painter's tape and a promarker
I got to work and decided this way was best...
What do you think? Which piece of your kit, if any, will you forge?
Go on, have a go...

September Reveal

Yay, you made it!!! I'm last on the Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop 
list this month and following on from Julene

Nicole is our Guest Designer this month.

Master Forger Margie has chosen the "Maggie" kit from Felicity Jane
which reminds me of summery days and ice cream!

Although I love the kit, it is rather large so I have numbered the items I will be counterfeiting
to create my kit...

Here are my choices for 1-12
(It was quite difficult to capture the colours in my photographs
 so I'm hoping my full kit photo below will help you see them in a better light)

And then I found this beauty (well there's 4 in total) in the charity shop 

and thought they could possibly replace the doilies in the kit!

So here's my September kit, Summer dreams

Will you counterfeit ALL the chosen kit, more or less?

Link up so we can all see and I'll be back on the fourth with some forgeries.
